I just kept two what could be called "resolutions" that I had made two weeks ago - telling myself that as much as I don't want to, by the new year I WOULD do these actions... Well, today I DID them.

~#1. I cancelled my Netflix membership.
This will allow me to pay for my daughter's Bally's membership, both for her health and for her to help me with getting there for my physical therapy routine.
Ironically, I get about two to three DVDs a week, at two hours each - the exact about of time I need for a full routine (get there, swim et al, shower & home), and the number of times per week I should go to Bally's.

~#2. I switched from my old cell phone to the new one.
We had ordered all new phones for our family plan a coupla weeks ago, but I've been stubbornly putting off the switch. I had downloaded Tetris on my old phone several months ago, and with the switch I'll lose it. I can easily spend an hour playing it!
I LOVE Tetris! I ordered it as a way to work my brain, always good for us as we age, but especially important for me because of the still remaining effects of my brain injury.
However, I have so many paperwork tasks to do, which I have been either doing piecemeal or putting off entirely. I commited to making the switch and NOT ordering a new download of Tetris until these tasks are fully done.

What a sense of relief!!! Done and done...

I have decided not to make resolutions because I don't keep them, the only one that I keep is the one to get health and off the medicines that I am on but that is not a New Years Resolution, it is for the whole year.

Dorothy

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.
Charles Stanley

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in

Be realistic with yourself.
Don't set yourself up for disappointment.

You can resolve to do your very best to get to a healthier fitter you with good nutrition and exercise, but don't 'resolve' to lose 50 lbs in 6 months for instance. Some people can (some bodies cooperate) but not everyone can, and that is not for lack of want or determination.

Love yourself!
I think that is a NewYear's Resolution I wish for all of you ...

I stopped making New Year's Resolutions a long time ago, because I always stopped trying to keep them and then got even more discouraged with myself.
This year, I know I'll have success - at least a real shot at success - because my resolution has a definite workable plan:
I'm going to stay with Spark and emoticon
keep working it like I have been!

I didn't find Spark until September so it was pretty late in the year. But my resolution in 2008 is to continue with Spark and my lifestyle changes. I am going to keep up with the exercise and watching my calories.

I've tended not to make resolutions because they never lasted long. This year I will make a goal to keep up with Spark and get my weight off. I cannot neglect myself anymore.

I made a resolution this past new year to find a healthier lifestyle plan and stick to it. This is the first time I didn't break a resolution!! They say stick with what you know, so I'm gonna stick with the same resolution and the same plan. Bring on the new year!!

Mine is doing healthier choices,in the new year to benefit my health with insulin and to make myself healthie once again for me and my family, to lift my spirits up with bright smiles and everyone knowing it.
I want out of this depression, so looking after myself better is going to benefit every thing in my life! and live life peacefully with God's help.
I need a healthie diet with my insulin and keep an eye on my blood sugars , wake up in the morning so I dont get low and scare myself off again like I did.
I dont want my life full of fear.
I want to think positive at all times and in the mean while I want to start to so I can benefit my health in the mean while before xmas comes.
so I need to wake earlier and stay up and live life in the fullest each day that goes by being healthie
and looking after me and see the day go by and not waisting my day!
Drinking alot of water!
exercising alittle each day!
eating veggies each day!
eating friuts each day!
STEAMING MY FOODS!
POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS!
SELF TALKIN MYSELF TO STOP EMOTIONAL EATIN!
BED EARLIER AND WAKING EARLIER 7AM
PRAYING TO GOD FOR HELP!
LEARN TO MEDITATE AND HEAL MYSELF BETTER!
